  • We reserve the right to refuse admission.

Access to the Library

We can only grant access for short periods during term time. We can allow longer visits during vacations. Membership may be more suitable for some users.

Access to electronic services

Access to electronic services is not permitted for visitors to the Library unless the visitors are alumni, in which case you may ask for walk-in access to electronic resources.
